Owners description

With strong historical influences from both South Africa and India, Bombay Brasserie is Taj Cape Town's signature fine dining Indian restaurant.

Fashioned on London's iconic restaurant of the same name, Bombay Brasserie is a restaurant grounded in spice; a story of rich culture, strong heritage and exceptional cuisine.

Open for dinner and seating just 42 guests, Bombay Brasserie is located in the historical Board of Executors building in the heart of the old city. Slip into silk peacock-embroidered chairs positioned under magnificent crystal chandeliers while sophisticated service and handcrafted menus await. Named after the multi-cultural and cosmopolitan city in India, Bombay Brasserie Cape Town lives up to its name by offering diverse cooking styles from the four corners of India - but with two unique elements... authentic Cape Town flair and flavour, which results in some the finest dishes outside of India.

Executive Chef David Tilly has worked at Taj hotels all over the world, tasting, experimenting and appreciating a kaleidoscope of culinary experiences. Now, after immersing himself in the customs and cultures of the city, he has devised a menu guaranteed to impress the most discerning diner. Together with his team of five Indian chefs, using only the best locally sourced ingredients blended with the finest imported spices from India, they create dishes laced with contemporary flavour while equally delighting the palate and imagination.

User reviews

  • After an indulgent afternoon being pampered at the Jiva spa, my partner and I were lookin forward to a dinner of the most delicious Indian Cuisine. In truth I am the real fan of good curry, enjoying the taste and the heat tremendously, while my partner is open to good food but not necessarily hot food. She needn’t have worried! Our attendant Veronique, was very knowledgeable and courteous, recommending a lovely Ondine Chenin blanc to go with our dinner and never being more than a slight hand gesture away. Portion sizes were perfect. With the amuse bouche really whetting our appetites for the culinary journey that lay ahead! The steaming spectacle that is the mango sorbet palate cleanser was truly a sight to behold. It really brought out my inner child! Dinner was a delightful! A mild prawn and mango chutney curry served with saffron rice, it even had my better half commenting that she might have been able to handle and even spicier version. We rounded out with a delectable crème brûlée and a beautiful variation on cheese cake that looked almost too good to eat! What a lovely experience, set in a plush colonial feel dining room with thick carpets and low chandeliers! Beautiful.
